A Trio of Treats !

Get your virtual sugar rush here
Hubby was out playing Golf, Suzie was snoozing, dreaming of chasing squirrels, so I took command of the kitchen!
First thing to go in the oven was a fruit cake. Now, I am not a fan of this sort of cake, so it's good for me to make when I am on a diet.. not much chance of me chomping my way through it.
It does look and smell delicious though... so I might just have to try a small piece.. in the interests of research!

Next came a batch of Chewy Date Cookies.
I love dates, and had a hard time adding them to the mixture and not just eating them, there and then.
I remember trips to the bakery when I was growing up... whilst other kids would pick the chocolate eclairs,
custard slices and cream doughnuts, I always wanted the date slice.
You don't really see them around much now.

And finally...   Tropical Crunch.
(Cereal with cashews, banana chips, dried apple pieces, apricots, dates, rasins and choc chips)
I made mountains of this, which is just as well, as hubby has chomped his way through one jar already!

Is that enough sugar for you?
